Hi there!
« on: September 12, 2020, 01:17:18 AM »
Hello Everybody,

I'm living in France.
Father of two kids.  :pullhair:

I lurked sometimes this board in search of advices on games,
or AARs (will post one soon)
or tips on our hexagonal drug.
 
And... well... I decided to join the board.

I like wargames on Eastern Front or the American civil war.

Welcome!   :bd:
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Don't put yourself down like that SirAndrew.  ;D   Weird, maybe but I've always felt that weird should be judged on a curve. Cause there's plenty to go around. And...Welcome Stuartm.  O0
